Awards & Recognition

Just as the entertainment industry honors its brightest stars each year at The Academy Awards, the credit union movement too honors its "best of the best" annually. The Awards & Recognition program is a wonderful opportunity to honor those in the movement who demonstrate a sincere passion for the cause, and recognize credit unions for their commitment to community. Being able to demonstrate to your members, community, public opinion makers and lawmakers that you are an integral part of your community, as well as illustrate the credit union difference is becoming increasingly important in today's competitive landscape.
